The Boy From Wham!

July 27, 2017

Ever since I was a teenager, I’d always thought one day I would meet George Michael. It’s not that strange, actually, to have felt that way. I’m sure I’m not the only one who did. Every gay teenager at the time was affected by George Michael, whether they wanted to admit it or not. How […]

Dear Mr. Book Clerk,

It was a struggle to manage the heavy glass door. The handles were oddly positioned, and the door was intent on closing before I was inside.

There was an art supply store by the railroad tracks. Sounds like a country music song, if country music songwriters could also draw. I would go there every now and then to pick up an item I remembered from the art classes I’d taken at school. You’d be surprised how often a knowledge of art […]

My roommate and his boyfriend have started using baby talk. “I have been a bawd bowy. Are you gowing to spawnk mee?” This was said on the phone as he was walking by my bedroom door, so I didn’t catch the other end of the conversation, but I imagine that was in baby talk, too. […]
